Finish: Short and spicy.
Comment: An interesting dram with some lovely sweet notes.
7.8
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Resiny. Sun warmed pine needles. Quite unusual. Touch of honey. Reminds me of cough lozenges called 'Pastilles des Vosges'
Palate: Smooth, velvety. Sweet at first then drying on spices. Becomes sherbety.The same balsamic notes as on the nose. Resin and mint.
Finish: Dry, slightly sharp.
Comment: Not unpleasant but one dimensional. With some astringency on the finish.
